Business Leaders Discuss Effects Of Opioid Crisis

The addiction crisis is not only affecting individuals; its impact can be felt by families and businesses as well as sectors that include health, emergency and law enforcement. Different rehabilitation centers have been created from standard facilities to luxury rehab that caters to the affluent. Some people need to be treated in privacy so that they will feel relaxed and comfortable during the process of recovery.

Business leaders from across Clinton County decided to meet in Plattsburgh to discuss the effects of the opioid crisis on the business community. The business leaders met in groups and presented their reports.

According to Essex County Drug Court Administrator Brooke Clark, they are willing to embrace people who are struggling with recovery. They want to give them the chance and are willing to support them during their journey towards recovery. Their jobs will remain open until they can return to work. Wanting to work with people who are suffering from addictions will remove the stigma attached to them.

Meanwhile, Dana Isabella, Champlain Valley Family Center’s Director for Tobacco Free Clinton Franklin Essex Counties discussed the challenges of living in rural area when it comes to successful recovery and employment. There is a stigma around addiction and recovery and employees need more education and support. Employers on the other hand need more understanding, tolerance and flexibility.

SPARCC Steering Committee and Coalition member Michael Carpenter said that they choose businesses that are more predisposed to help because they want to emphasize that the business segment must be the center point for addiction recovery. People always looked at treatments for addiction and prevention but not long-term recovery. An addict will be encouraged to recover if there is employment and a purpose in life. Employers must meet together and discuss their issues why they do not want to employ addicts.

Every member of the professional staff of luxury rehab understands the needs of the patient to properly recover from addiction. To make recovery easy, the patients must be as comfortable and relaxed as possible. A beautiful environment is important so that the patient can recover in privacy, dignity and sustainable results.

Steps To Plan Your Perfect Event Without Using An Event Manager

The task of managing a large-scale event such as a conference might seem daunting to many, but with the steps outlined in the following article, it can actually become much easier. These steps outline a detailed process by which conference and events management can be done both quickly and economically.

  1. The first task when it comes to event management is to find an appropriate venue for the event. In the case of international conferences held for scholarly communities, it would seem appropriate to find universities with the necessary facilities to pull it off. However, if the conference is for a multinational corporation, a conference hall located near some good hotels would be the best option.
  2. The second step would be the recruitment and management of teams to handle certain tasks for the event. These teams can be wide ranging and may include logistics, transportation, food, technology and hospitality. The organizational structure of the entire team working for the event is similar to that of a company, which has the CEO at the top rung, to whom frequent reports are made by the heads of multiple other departments. This implies that each of these teams must have an assigned head to ensure there is no confusion in the communication of information between team members.
  3. The intermediate step is to market the conference or event. Without this the whole point of the conference and events management is rendered useless. Some viable and cheap methods to market the event is to use the technology team to help spread the word using digital marketing campaigns such as social media marketing, email advertising, and using paid advertising mechanisms.
  4. Finally, everything boils down to how the event is managed on the day. For everything to run smoothly, it is required for the event manager to coordinate all the activities in an optimal manner. This optimality is usually enhanced by using appropriate technology such as voice links with the heads of the different departments.Also, the information given to the conference attendees must be easy to understand because in the end, the conference is held for them.

Thailand As The Land Of Thousand 7-11’s

In the heart of Bangkok is Sathorn hotel that offers the best benefits for a business or leisure traveler. The hotel is ideally located to meet every need and convenience. Aside from ease of access to various tourist destinations and entertainment venues, the hotel is near the commercial district that has seen a phenomenal growth over the recent years in spite of different challenges.

For the past 20 years, tourists continue to visit Thailand through the bombings, floods, coups, political upheavals and a few unsolved murders. Tourist arrivals at the airports continue to grow even if many people predict that the good days of tourism will be finally over. Many have also made fearless forecasts that the number of tourist arrivals will soon plateau but right now everyone is asking when?

The currencies of many Asian nations are strengthening against the US dollar and Asians have the money to travel and spend a holiday. Asians are travelling to the Land of Smiles and spending their monies on hotels, entertainment venues and tourist destinations. The good days are not over because tourists continue to flock to Bangkok, Phuket and the surrounding islands.

Years ago Thailand was known as the Land of Thousand Smiles but right now it is more proper to call the country as the Land of Thousand 7/11’s. Those who start business in Thailand prefer a convenience store or a tour provider because their success is very obvious. Anything that caters to tourists is bound to succeed particularly hotels, bed & breakfasts, apartments and inns including restaurants and bars.

China continues to be the major source for tourists. Inbound tourist arrivals up to the end of August this year are estimated at more than 3 million or up by 8.6% year-on-year. Based on the current numbers, tourism officials are confident that tourist arrivals will exceed their expectations this year.

On the other hand, in spite of the continuing increase in tourist arrivals, hotels must not rest on their laurels. Like Sathorn hotel, all other hotels in Thailand must offer the best when it comes to amenities and facilities. Guests want more perks, more discounts and more special offers aside from comfort and convenience.

Index Shows Increase On Rent Pricing Across England And Wales

Current demand for rentable properties, not the least of which is the demand of workers for rent in London flat, led to an noted increase in rent in 9 out of the 10 regions across England and Wales, hitting a national average of £904, according to the latest index.

Regions across the country are seeing such an increase in demand as tenant numbers rise, that supplies are unable to keep up, leading to an increase in rent, primarily concentrated in the East of England and the North West, as per the data from Your Move’s buy to let index.

Both regions saw their monthly rent increase by 3.2% in the 12 months preceding the August of 2017, to £876 and £631 for the East and North West, respectively. The South East wasn’t trailing that far behind with a 3% increase, bringing that area’s average to £882 per month.

The South West region was the only region to have recorded a decrease in rent prices, with the average rent in the area having dropped by 2.7% from the preceding year at £667. However, the North East still holds the lowest prices at £540 per month.

The capital continues to honour its reputation for expensive rent, with the highest average rents, clocking in at £1,282 per calendar month, varying based on location. This was a 1.5% increase from last year’s numbers.

On a monthly basis, rent levels were fairly level for all regions, with the South West, Yorkshire and The Humber recording the highest growth in one month at .4%, between July and August.

Landlords and investors in the North East region enjoyed the highest returns in the country, with yields averaging at 5% during August, in comparison with the capital’s 3.2%, the lowest. This number has also managed to remain steady throughout the time of 2017.

According to Richard Waind, Your Move’s Director,  yields are experiencing a bit of a slow down, in spite of rising rents, due to a reduction in tenant enquiries following Brexit, which then led to a decrease in EU migration.

He states, however, that the August-September range is when activity is at it’s highest, and this, combined with the slow, but steady increase in new listings following the recent tax changes that affected landlords throughout the country meant that rent prices could continue to increase in the following months.
